Best Outdoor Activity in Ljubljana

Šmarna Gora Hiking

Along with Rožnik, its little sister near the centre, Šmarna Gora is a favourite local hiking spot for the local Ljubljana folk. Dominating the capital's skyline to the north, its two stout peaks rise 676m and 669m to form a bosom-shaped mound that's just begging to be rambled. To the left, the peak of Grmada (traditionally where witches were burned at the stake) is the quieter option, with commanding views to the west and also across Ljubljana. Read more...
